DE Trudo returns from Syracuse

Rob Trudo took his second official visit of the recruiting process over the weekend and it was one of the highlights of the recruiting process so far.

The 6-foot-5, 262-pound defensive end from Farrell (Pa.) Farrell Area is the No. 39 prospect in Pennsylvania according to Rivals.com and he has drawn offers from schools such as Boston College, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and West Virginia, plus several smaller programs.

Prior to this weekend he had already taken an official visit to Boston College, so he had something to compare this visit to. He was at Syracuse for the past couple of days and Rivals.com caught up with him just after he got back home Sunday evening.

"It was a great visit," Trudo explained. "It was great just being around all the guys. The engineering college was great. I want to study mechanical engineering and they have a great school for that."

It's always important to interact with the coaches while on an official visit and that was a huge reason why Trudo's trip to Syracuse was a success.

"No doubt, definitely," he said. "AI met all the coaches. I probably spent the most time talking to coach (Greg) Adkins and coach (Doug) Marrone.

"They just told me what they can offer me. They said they can't tell me Syracuse is the best place for me because they don't know me like that. But they told me what they can offer you. I definitely liked what they had to say."

Trudo has been planning on taking an official visit to West Virginia this coming weekend, but he has not ruled out the possibility of a decision in the near future.
